"A Hair Disaster!" is the 20th episode of Ready, Steady, Wiggle!

Official Description

Lachy's inventions always result in fun, so when he creates something that can change hair styles it becomes a hair disaster! Can Madame Bouffant save the day? Meanwhile Anthony has some alphabet fun.


Lachy has an invention! It is a wand that you can wave over your head and can have any hairdo you like. Anthony wishes to have hair like Elvis. After a few seconds, Anthony has white hair with a ponytail. Lachy runs away screaming in terror.

Emma then wishes to have short red hair with a pink bow. Simon then wishes to have hair like The Beatles. But after a few seconds the two Wiggles come back and it turns out Emma has the hair Simon wanted, and Simon has the hair Emma wanted! Lachy screams in terror again.

The Awake Wiggles then call Madame Bouffant and her assistant Mary Clare to help. The three Wiggles hair comes back to normal. Lachy comes back into the living room hoping the wand had been fixed, but after waving it over his head, his hair becomes curly and blonde.
